Vehicle rollover is a major cause of death and injury in mining areas. Delta-V Experts designs Rollover Protection Systems to cutting edge safety standards, and back them up with stringent design, computer modelling and physical testing regimes.
Our award winning Rollover Protective Structure designs are used by major mining and resource companies worldwide, such as BHP Billiton and Anglo American, with representation on four continents.
DVE has developed Rollover Protective Structural System solutions for light vehicles, utilities, trucks, buses and people movers. The Rollover Protective Structural Systems can be retrofitted to current fleets or specified as part of a new vehicle fit out. We can also tailor our designs to suit any specific site requirements, and can integrate the ROPS to cater for existing infrastructure and tools.
Our systems and methodology have received recognition via the Bronze Award at the SAE-A Automotive Engineering Excellence Awards 2008.
Delta-V Experts have developed a unique performance criteria for all of its ROPS designs, based on many years of research and an understanding of how rollover really works.

Delta-V Experts maintains a database of existing Rollover Protective Structural System designs and vehicle dimensions. If a similar vehicle Rollover Protective Structural System exists within the DVE database, DVE can work with local manufacturers to provide drawings and manufacturing instructions as required. If no similar vehicle Rollover Protective Structural System exists, the vehicle will need to be inspected, measured and a Rollover Protective Structural System developed and evaluated.
